I looked into different options when I first wanted to do something, and the first time around, I ended up doing Pampered Chef. I still have all of my stuff and still LOVE Pampered Chef stuff. I stopped it after a couple years. It actually just became too much to keep up with, I think. And truthfully, it started to stress me out. I always felt like I was getting pressure instead of support. To be fair though, that was before the age of social media!
Then after having my first baby, I had that "lost", "what the heck am I doing" phase.
|As a New Mommy (before I stopped coloring my hair!)|
"worthless", if that's the right word. I needed something besides sitting home all the time with the baby and needed a way to try to feel like I was doing something to help support the family financially (at least a little.) So, I started a direct selling company again. I did it again for a couple years on and off. Then I decided to take a break. At that time, the company I was with, just wasn't the best option for me. Actually, the company that I was with decided to leave the direct selling market! Or maybe all along, ALL the companies I chose, just weren't the best companies for me. There are so many options out there. If you would ever like to see what companies are available for a direct selling opportunity, check out the DSA website. I'm sure there's something to fit everyone's interest and lifestyle. This is just my story of why I like this one. It might not be everyone's perfect fit. But, it's mine.
Here's why I LOVE my Lemongrass Spa business and like the way it fits for me and my life. My top 10 reasons I love my LGS business! After comparing several different companies, this is why I chose this company and why I continue to stay with this company.
- The first and number one reason I love my Lemongrass Spa business as an Independent Consultant is because I love the products. You can check them out at my website: http://www.ourlemongrassspa.com/michellegr
- I'm a girly-girl.
- For chemical-free products, the prices are pretty reasonable. I checked several different companies and Lemongrass Spa seemed to have the most affordable prices.
- The support that I get from everyone in the company is un-ending, from the other consultants, to the home office support, all the way up to the owner. The owner is very active in the company and she is wonderful!
- The starter kit was a reasonable price. Starter kits for direct selling companies can go anywhere from around $30 up to $500 or more. I really prefer to start a direct selling company for between $50 - $150. That's my range. Other than that, it's just too much for me to begin something if I'm not sure I'll even like it. Luckily for me, I LOVE it! The Lemongrass Spa Consultant kit is $139 + tax and has everything I needed to start my business. Plus, there were two options. I could have chosen either the Sheer Minerals Makeup Success Kit or the Spa Party Success Kit. Both are worth over $400 retail value and give you all the stuff you need to start your business.
- There are opportunities to earn extra goodies in the first 3 months that you join (up to $1,000 of extra goodies to help you in your business). I didn't earn mine, but the option is there if you choose to go that route. I kind of joined the company "blindly." I wasn't recruited by anyone and had no prior experience with the products. I just jumped in feet first. Now that I know more, I'm more excited than ever and I have a better "feel" for everything. Luckily for me, they are now Offering Consultants who have already finished their Jump Start period the chance to do it again! Even though I didn't do it in the beginning, they're giving all of us another chance! It's called Restart Rewards and it's another great chance to build my business and get more goodies.
- The training is excellent! As I said before, I get so much support. There is a group on Facebook where all consultants can give each other tips, ask questions, give shout-outs or post success stories. In addition though, they have a whole website dedicated to training documents and videos. And there are field directors who host live webinars all the time. We get a weekly email alerting us to which training opportunities are coming up ~~ including product training, direct selling training, etc. There's also a Faithful Friends Prayer and Inspiration call sometimes. This company really cares about our personal growth.
- You can earn trips! This year, the consultants are able to earn a trip to Jamaica. There are 3 different levels that you're able to earn. I'm not going for it this year, but we'll see what happens next year. I love that I have the option to earn a trip somewhere incredible just by sharing products that I use and love and by trying to help others learn about better, healthier options for their personal care products.
- Did I forget to tell you that I get a discount on everything I buy for myself? Duh! This is actually the best perk for me. I get a 25% discount on everything I buy for myself and my family. I get 25% beginning commission on sales, plus bonuses if I reach certain levels each month. Plus, I can build a team to create a bigger business if I choose to go that route. The possibilities are endless.
- It's only $25 to stay active each month. This was a big, big factor in me choosing this company. I've heard of other companies who require $200/month to stay active. That's just too much pressure. What if I have an "off" month? I know I can spend $25/month just by myself because I use everything. You can either spend $25 on your own stuff (you get the 25% discount on that) + shipping and tax, or sell $25 worth of stuff. So, even if I buy $25 worth of stuff each month, with my discount, tax and shipping that comes to $27.75 for me. So do-able. So, I can make this opportunity as BIG as I want, or just help myself, my family and my friends lead a healthier lifestyle. I can do it at my pace, with no real pressure, and all the support I can get. BTW. . . . . I actually have friends who place orders monthly, so I always make my $25 minimum.
Bonus reasons: They have excellent host benefits and specials each month. Here are this month's specials:
